United Way on the way to goal

Less than two weeks after the McDuffie County United Way campaign got underway, officials announced donations of nearly 20 percent of the $90,000 goal.

United Way President Tommy Phelps updates the thermometer.

So far, contributions add up to about $17,500, said Tommy Phelps, president of the local United Way which serves both McDuffie and Warren Counties.

"If we stay on the current pace, we feel very good about reaching our goal and possibly exceeding it," he said.

Officials said fundraising efforts this year will benefit 17 local agencies and an all-volunteer board of directors will decide how to disburse the donations.

The campaign, which will run until mid-December, includes donations from both small and large businesses and from individuals.

"The Rotary Club and Kiwanis will soon kick off their part of the campaign (aimed at small businesses)," Mr. Phelps said.

Executive director Charles Bellmann will continue to work with large businesses.

The annual United Way Campaign supports organizations that help the needy and foster development of youth and leaders.

Donations from businesses as well as individuals are welcome, and may be sent to The United Way, P.O. Box 87, Thomson, GA 30824.
